Often great fighters leave the sport of boxing, and at the end of there careers they began to take beatings of fighters they would of licked in there prime. It's happened way to often etc Ezzard Charles, Julio Cesar Chavez, etc etc.

But name me some fighters who left the sport of boxing without taking beating's at the end of there careers.

Here's a few........Charley Burley, Jimmy McLarnin, Rocky Marciano, Carlos Monzon, Marvin Hagler, Ricardo Lopez, Dick Tiger, Jose Torres.

Jack Dempsey: He lost a couple to Tunney but neither fight was a beating.

George Foreman. I watched his last fight against Briggs and thought the result in Brigg's favour was a mockery of justice.

Chris Eubank didn't take a beating and boxed very well against Carl Thompson in his last two fights. Eye injuires being the major factor.

Hagler would qualify I think, you couldn't say that Leonard gave him a beating whatever your view.
Also I would say Michael Spinks, the Tyson KO was quick and clinical but not a beating like he inflicted on say Ruddock.

I was going to say Hagler but couldn't have imagined that no one had said it yet!

Think he was a bit fortunate that Tunney didn't have a whole lot of power at HW though, he did get well beat.
